Most buyers will be well-served by the GLS 450. It delivers solid performance along with its luxurious cabin, plus it leaves room for customization with numerous options packages.

PROS
Spacious third-row seat can accommodate adults
Ample acceleration with any powertrain choice
Quiet cabin with luxurious trim
Available off-road package gives it true capability in the dirt

CONS
Many desirable features don't come standard
Large price jump from GLS 450 to GLS 550

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS takes an old-school tack to modern-SUV design, and it works.

Pros
Lots of room
Lots of flexibility
Big luxury SUV panache
Lots of safety technology on tap
AMG–no, really

Dated switchgear
COMAND is cumbersome
Diesel’s been deleted

Smooth ride

Cons
Fewer standard features than some rivals

The Patrol Y62, to give it its full in-house code name, is very different from every Nissan Patrol that preceded it. This Patrol has a big V8 engine that gives it exceptional performance. As well, its unusual and technically advanced suspension combines on-road handling impressively with off road ability. The Patrol has a luxurious and very roomy cabin with at least seven seats, and a sophisticated dual-range four-wheel drive system.

Pros
Huge cabin;
powerful engine;
very capable off road.

Cons
Heavy fuel use;
needs plenty of parking room.

The Patrol does seem underdone with some of its controls and it is a big unit to thread around town. Yet it is a very good tow vehicle, with very good performance, pretty good stability and ride and the fuel consumption of a small V8 – if you don’t push it hard.

Pros
Performance
Relatively light on fuel
Towing stability

Cons
Outdated park brake
Lack of digital speedometer
Reduced towball download at GVM
